Join Urban Green and AIA New York for a discussion on the ways in which the practice and teaching of architecture will undergo a paradigm shift to properly respond to the changing global climate and to the ambitious local 80x50 goals set by Mayor De Blasio. Four themes will be addressed: Education, Mandates & Policy, Branding & Visioning, and Owner Interests.

As part of a series of events, Dialogues from the Edge of Practice, the theme intends to explore how architects are boldly enlarging the purview of the practitioner to bring their particular critical problem solving skills and design acumen to endeavors previously considered outside the traditional scope of practice.

THE CONFERENCE IS SOLD OUT

Façade Face-Off gives the stage to owners who have planned and executed innovative projects with high-performing façades. They'll explain the why, what, and how of their buildings, including commercial and residential, new and retrofit projects, such as:

  • The world’s first Passive House office tower
  • The nation’s largest deep energy retrofit, a 1960’s affordable multifamily building that received a complete re-skin – without tenants vacating their units
  • A groundbreaking façade retrofit of an Upper East Side white-brick residential tower
  • A LEED Platinum government building re-skinned with a shaded glass curtain wall
  • A pending Passive House certified multifamily building in Harlem

Be part of the conversation and learn about the next generation of façades changing the skyline in NYC and beyond.

Can't make it to the conference? Join us for René Toth's extended presentation of RHW.2, a passive house office tower in Vienna, on Tuesday, September 23. Register here.

CHP Breakfast: Enhance Your Building’s Power Reliability

This event is sold out.

Post-Sandy, forward-thinking building owners and managers are taking action to ensure the delivery of critical services. They understand all too well the importance of keeping the lights on, the elevators running, and water flowing. And, should the next wide-scale grid outage happen during the deep freeze of winter, on-site electricity is essential to operating boilers and keeping pipes from bursting.

NYSERDA, Solar One, and Urban Green Council invite building owners and property managers to learn how a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system generates electricity, and can help save money while keeping the lights on when the grid goes down. Hear how your building could benefit from installing a CHP system, and how to take advantage of $100 million worth of incentives available from NYSERDA.

SCHEDULE

8:30–9:00 AM – Breakfast
9:00–10:30 AM – Presentations
10:30–11:00 AM – Discussion

Dana Levy
Program Manager, NYSERDA

Presentation: Introduction to CHP Technology

Brian Smyser

In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, City Council passed a number of building resiliency laws, eight of which are currently in effect. With support from the NYC Department of Buildings, Urban Green Council developed this complimentary program to educate building professionals about the new resiliency laws, the resulting code changes, and how they will prepare the city for future extreme weather events.

  • 29/13 Raising and Moving Buildings
  • 82/13 Providing a Flood Manual
  • 83/13 Preventing Sewage Backflow
  • 95/13 Protecting Patient Care Areas
  • 96/13 Survey Data and Flood Maps
  • 99/13 Cable Length and Fuel Oil Storage
  • 109/13 Temporary Flood Shields
  • 111/13 Emergency and Standby Power

As a result, New York City architects and engineers are tasked with learning new code requirements and creating stronger, more resilient buildings. With support from the NYC Department of Buildings, Urban Green Council developed this program to educate building professionals about the laws, the resulting code changes, and how they will prepare the city for future extreme weather events.
